In yarn shops and private homes, churches and synagogues, schools and even prisons, they meet on weekday evenings or weekend afternoons to knit afghans for refugees, mittens for the homeless, socks for soldiers, or preemie caps for AIDS babies. The tradition goes back as far as Martha Washington, who spearheaded knitting efforts for the soldiers of the Revolutionary War, and has seen a recent flourishing in what is nowadays called “charity knitting,” “community knitting,” or “knitting for others.” And whether it’s for world peace, community peace, or peace of mind, today’s various causes have the common goal of knitting the world into a better place one stitch at a time.

PLEASE keep in mind (as I did not pay attention to this) that this book if from 2006 and a lot of information is wrong or no longer available. By a lot I mean that, at the time of this review, of the 40 links to organizations or resource pages only 20 were still in existence, 18 were no longer in existence, 1 was a bad domain (.org instead of .com) and one link hadn't been updated since 2006. Don't get me wrong, of the 20 that are still around the stories are moving and the information helpful and there are some patterns (14 in all) but I didn't expect over 1/2 of the book to be irrelevant.

What to make, for who and where - including clear instructions and photographs of the finished projects. Not hard, not intimidating.

I belong to a knitting group that kints for causes listed in this book; mainly the Mother Bear.......... They handed out the patterns and I was so impressed that I purchased the used book from Amazon. Truly a beautiful book and the stories touch your heart. I only wish I could knit for all of the orphans of the world. The photography is magnificant.

My only complaint is that the print is small and it is very dull. I
can cope with that situation but I am afraid that other people with serious
eye issues might have a problem. I am thinking of getting one of those page magnifiers. My eyes are average for my age. Please don't let that
stop you. You can always xerox the page and print it out in a larger
font if it is a problem.

Please take up your knitting needles and do something for the cause.

i LOVE this book. it is certainly inspirational. i love the process of knitting but have more than enough homemade hats, scarves, etc to clothe myself, family, and friends. all the clutter was starting to slow me down and take away from the experience of knitting. this book gives both meaning to knitting and avenues for sharing it with people who really need it. the sections have up-to-date contact info for various charity knitting organizations as well as patterns and other special instructions (such as yarn type, most needed items, etc.) there are patterns for very beginner knitters all the way through advanced, as well as tips for personalizing and modifying them. this book has definitely put new energy, meaning, thought, and enjoyment into my knitting.

This book goes into detail the history behind the knitting charities out there now. Each charity or need is well documented, and information given to provide the reader a wide range of opportunities. Instructions on what and where and how to send to each are clearly explained, as well as the reason it is needed. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how a single item can make such a great difference in the world. Fantastic ideas for clubs looking for a worthy project!

I love this book!! It is so motivating and has some great patterns to help you pass the love along. Well written, there are just enough stories of those in need to push you along without feeling overwhelming.

The patterns are also very useful as a source to pass along. I have used the information and some patterns to teach two beginner knitter classes at my church as I was asked to head up getting our ward to make 100 blankets by September. This came soon after buying and reading!!
I avoided getting this book for a really long time because I thought it seemed too new-age and touchy feeley. I finally broke down and made the purchase. Reading this book literally brought tears to my eyes. All I want to do now is knit as much as I can for all the charities mentioned in the book. The designs are simple to read and the back-stories on the organizations are poignant and inspiring. Please don't think twice about getting this and helping out. It's a beautiful way to use your skills to make a difference!
